This resource is designed to help regional leaders explore how to create a balanced and impactful set of policies, programs, and practices that will transform the system that produces health and well-being.
Across the country, thousands of multisector partnerships are working to enhance health and well-being in cities, counties, and other regions. Some of the most ambitious partnerships engage large numbers of residents and other stakeholders, all of whom may work together as legitimate stewards of their common system to steer their regions in a new direction.
When diverse stakeholders come together across sectors and backgrounds, it can be difficult to see connections; and it can be even harder to think through how changes in one area of people’s lives may play out to affect other areas over time. This exercise will help you see the dimensions of your region’s health ecosystem, including the distinct variables and organizations that depend on and interact with one another to produce health and well-being
